Odeon Brighton To Host Special Pride Charity Screenings

In the wake of the events in Orlando earlier this month, Odeon Cinemas will hold special charity screenings of hit British film Pride. 

Following requests from the LGBT+ community, including Rooftop Film Club and Stonewall UK, the cinema will be donating all money raised from ticket sales to Stonewall UK – the country's leading LGBT+ support charity.

Five Odeon cinemas, including Brighton, will screen the film on Tuesday 5 July at 8:15pm.

Andy Edge, Commercial Director at Odean, said: 

"Stonewall UK contacted us to request the screenings after many people had got in touch with them. 

"The LGBT+ community has shown enormous strength and unity in the wake of the events in Orlando and we hope these screenings can raise funds for Stonewall UK so they can continue to spread their message of "acceptance without exception." 

He continued "We hope as many guests as possible will join us to help raise money for a fantastic cause and enjoy the incredible story that is told in Pride."

Pride was originally released in 2014 to critical acclaim and was nominated for three BAFTAs. 

Starring Bill Nighy, Andrew Scott and Imelda Staunton, it is based on the true story of gay and lesbian activists who raised money for a community in Wales that was being affected by the 1984 miners" strikes.

Louise Smith, Director of Fundraising at Stonewall UK, said: 

"Recent events have reminded us more than ever how important solidarity is, both within the lesbian, gay, bi and trans community and among our much loved and vital allies. 

"Together we"ll continue to work until all LGBT people are accepted without exception."
